Yellow engine light is for low oil pressure.Get the oil level checked.The yellow light is indicating you to get the oil level checked.But if in case the oil is full then the oil pressure sensor is to be checked .Because the sensor is not sensing the oil still it is full.Add some oil and drive the car for some time and check.If still the light is On that means oil sensor needs to be checked and replaced.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Is it safe to drive whilst the yellow engine symbol is on the dashboard?


If it is the check engine light, Yellow light that looks like a engine, or may say "Check engine", Yes, it is safe to drive until you can get it checked. As long as the vehicle is driving normal. If the light starts flashing, DO NOT DRIVE it. A flashing check engine light means a misfire and could cause a fire due to raw fuel going down the exhaust into the cat converters.

Hi there:
When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

The four most common Check Engine light scenarios and what to do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have a 2005 kia sorento and a light came on today next to the fuel it is yellow im not sure what the light means


There are many yellow lights on vehicles. They can be different on the same make and model of any particular vehicle depending on what option packages your vehicle is equipped with. Your best bet is to look it up in your owners manual. If you do not have an owners manual, I offer this advise: On all vehicles with the warning lamps in the instrument cluster, the yellow lamp are advisory lamps. ie. telling you that there is a malfunction with a system or letting you know that certain systems have been disabled. It is usually safe to operate the vehicle with the yellow warning lamps illuminated long enough to get the vehicle to a repair facility. (Check Engine Lights, Airbag Lights, Low washer Fluid Lights, etc.)The red lamps on the other hand, mean that the vehicle is not safe to drive before the cause of the lamp coming on has been resolved. (examples are the red Brake Warning Lamp, The Engine Teperature Warning Lamp, The Oil Pressure Warning Lamp.)
Since you stated the the lamp is yellow, I would say that it would be safe to drive the car to your local repair facility and ask them about it and get a professional opinion of what to do about it.

What do the warning lights on the 2004 VW Passat dashboard mean as they are a few flashing and I don't know what they mean?


Depending on which light is flashing will determine whats wrong, normally thee are three lights that flash one is yellow check engine light, when it flashes it means a misfire and catastrophic catalytic converter failure. Red oil light means your low on oil and if it does not have a gage you may have damaged the engine and then there is several others like air bag warning light this would be caused by a defective clock spring, or a malfunction in the computer system. Your best bet is call your local dealer and describe to them your problem and tell them what lights are flashing they can determine weather you should drive it or have it towed in for repairs. Remember FLASHING RED OR Yellow light means imminent failure of expensive engine parts.

Yellow engine light went on. What does this mean?


Hi there,

The yellow/orange Engine Check Light is an indicator that your vehicle's computer has detected an abnormality within the engine's electronics or emission system.

Sometimes it can be a one-off abnormality, which eventually rectifies itself within 40 drive cycles.

However, if the Engine light remains lit, then this is an indication of something more concerning (but not necessarily serious).

If it does remain lit when driving, then you should have your local Jaguar service agent scan the computer for "trouble codes", which will quickly identify the component and/or location of the problem.


Hope this helps...

My engine light started blinking and there was a hesitation in the engine when yo pushed on the gas.


if it's the yellow check engine light flashing, it means you have a serious rich running engine that will destroy your $200 catalytic converters very quickly. do not drive with a flashing light.
run computer scan for failure codes and replace bad sensor. auto zone will scan for free. Don't drive too far though.

I need a diagram of dash board lights e,g the oil, the battery and the other light, the yellow warning light with a picture of an engine with a fan on top and on the front. What does it mean when that...


that light means you have a problem with the emission system of the car ity could be anything from a loose gas cap to a failed sensor . As long as the light isnt flashing then you can drive the car untill you get it checked out. If the light is FLASHING then DONT DRIVE THE CAR.
